“Skermons” are sermon illustrations with the skit and sermon woven together
into one dramatic, story-telling moment!

“Skermons” involve the pastor as a narrator or commentator while he preaches his sermon. The characters remain on stage in a frozen pose (tableau) during the sermon. At a given time during the action of the skit, the pastor walks up to the frozen characters. He refers to their motivations and subsequent actions as he presents his sermon, using the characters in the skit as illustrations.

Some “Skermons” involve props, which are either used by the character, or brought onto the stage by the pastor. The pastor associates the prop with the frozen character or mentions the connection to the audience; for example, putting a Bible into the hands of a frozen man who needs to use the “Sword of the Spirit,”” then commenting on it.

There are many types of “Skermons”; they are limited only by creativity. Virtually any skit can become a “Skermon” if the pastor decides to create a “tableau” (freeze) of the action, and then comment on it.
